To create Utopias, the brewers at Sam Adams used traditional brewing ingredients including all four types of Noble hops, which add a slightly earthy, herbal taste. The spiciness of the hops really comes alive. In fact, Utopias MMII has even been described by some as almost "fiery" -- a fitting description for the strongest beer in history. Beyond the special brand of hops, Utopias features ingredients that truly set it apart from other varieties of beer. Utopias MMII contains caramel and Vienna malts for its rich amber color and several different types of yeast including a variety found in champagne. $100 a bottle and it's limited to 3000 bottles, which look like copper brew kettles.

Clear amber/brown wit no head. Aroma is sweet, malty and boozy with caramel, figs, vanilla, sweet licorice, prunes, raisins and alcohol. Taste is sweet, malty and boozy. Finish is sweet and boozy with caramel, fudge, raisins, prunes, some sherry notes. Full bodied, oily texture.
Sweet and boozy in a good way.

_angst_ (4553) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle bought through Systembolaget. Pours dark reddish brown with no head leaving some nice looking legs on the glass with a swirl. Smell is very sherry like with tons of raisins, prunes, leather and fresh rather yeasty oxidation (oxymoron time!) but also clear barley wine character with caramel, toffee, light herbal hops and of course a rather hefty alcohol burn. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, malty, fruity and boozy. Mouthfeel is round, viscous, oily, flat, burning boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with caramel, toffee, raisins, prunes, minerals, yeast, leather, minerals and heavy sherry alcohol. I must confess I had no real expectations for this bad boy. But drinking this as an albeit extremely strong sherry this is quite delicious. I like!

Listigovers (913) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours uncarbonated and brown. Tastes a bit like a herbal bitter, not very much like beer, very chewy palate, a bit of dark chocolate, lots of caramel. There is surprisingly little heat for such a strong beer. A bit of spice as well, very unique. I enjoyed it a lot, thanks Folly! Finally tried it

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Rating #2206 – 2015.12.01 - #CraftBeerFantasyLeague Battle: Barrel-Aged Beauties – finished 4th of 9 entries. Hazy orange-brown pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is crazy hot, alcohol, pastry dough, burnt sugar, orange rind. Taste is tempered with sweetness, and a ton of alcohol on the palate, drinks like sherry/aperitif but not thoroughly undisguised, lots of sweet caramelly notes.

Melted carmel orgasm. And watch the 27% because smooth as hell. But boozy aroma but warm buttery taste and slips down the back of your throat. Thank you God for this beer existing

OminouSC2 (462) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2016
Dark amber color, hazy. No carbonation. Sweet aromas of caramel, raisins, punch, sherry. Sweet taste, dark, dried fruits, raisins, figs, prunes and apricot. Long, sweet finish with warming alcohol. Where do a beer stop being a beer and start being something else? This could easily be sold as a liqueur instead.

HighlanderOne (1237) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Poured from Utopias bottle into 2oz serving - a gift from my brother. Aroma is amazing - booze, caramel. vanilla, cherry, malt. Dark mahogany, no head. Tasting plenty of alcohol, as expected. Also, wood and toasted vanilla which reminds me of bourbon, with cherry, toffee, molasses, dried fruit, licorice, burnt malt. Palate is rich and smooth (considering the alcohol content). Not exactly the appropriate beer for a hot South Carolina day, but definitely one of the most unique, outstanding brews I’ve tried.

Bottle graciously shared by Gus, with koleminer20 and others, at the Beernanza. 10th anniversary. Aroma is booze, caramel, toffee, much alcohol, wonderful. Appearance is brown, no head, clear. Taste is caramel, brown sugar, toffee, sweet, then a ton of booze. Mouthfeel is medium body, no carbonation, wonderful dessert aftertaste. Overall, never thought I’d get this, and it’s wonderful.
